Bill to be Reintroduced in New Two-Year Session Beginning Tuesday at Noon

Assembly Bill A-4, which aimed to implement the new fourth round of rules for affordable housing and change the administration of affordable housing in New Jersey (click here to view my earlier post), was held by the Assembly Appropriations Committee yesterday. A companion bill in the Senate had been referred to the Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee, but was not considered by the committee in its last meeting of the two-year session ending next Tuesday. As a result, the bill’s sponsors have vowed to re-introduce the legislation in the next legislative session. The bill will have to begin the legislative process anew, including committee review in both houses. 

Our team of land use and government relations attorneys will continue to monitor this or other affordable housing legislation and update this blog from time to time.
